    FOR RENT: Top two floors of beautifully renovated brownstone, 1300 sq. ft., 2BR 2BA, eat-in kitchen, one block to parks and playgrounds. No broker's fee. Susan and Alex Wendt have found their dream apartment. Sure, the landlady is a little eccentric. And the elderly handyman drops some cryptic remarks about the basement. But the rent is so low, it's too good to pass up. Big mistake.

    Amazon Customer says: "Fantastic narration! Good, creepy story."
    "For daytime hours only!!!"

    Story

    Great story Mr. Winters! At one point, I was so engrossed in it, I stopped listening to go have a shower just because the storyline was making me feel so creepy-crawly. Anyone who chooses to listen to this one while in the midst of moving, consider yourself warned!

    The crime of the century begins without a hitch. On July 5th, 2070, as it's about to be launched, the starship Alabama is hijacked - by her captain and crew. In defiance of the repressive government of The United Republic of Earth, they replace her handpicked passengers with political dissidents and their families. These become Earth's first pioneers in the exploration of space...

    What did you love best about Coyote?

    The storyline and characters are interesting and feel familiar even though we're just meeting them in this book.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I found the long explanations about the time shifts quite dry, but expect that aspect is more important later in the series.


    What does Peter Ganim and Allen Steele bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrators voices reinforced the character images very well.


    Any additional comments?

    I found this much easier to get into than many Fantasy Sci-Fi novels, as originating on Earth, it keeps enough Earth flavor to be instantly identified with! Good work, Mr. Steele!
